What is/was/will be your college major? posted 20 July 2004 in Off-Topic DiscussionWhat is/was/will be your college major? by Aldarion, Sorcerer-of-Rank

BA Honors in History (University of Tennessee, 1996); MA in Modern European Cultural History (University of Tennessee, 1998); teacher certification classes, no degree (Austin Peay State University, 1999).

After 5 years of teaching of one sort or the other (history/geography/government/interim English on the high school and middle levels), I decided to take a break from teaching. Currently working two jobs. One as a residential counselor in a 24-hour monitored youth treatment center for boys with emotional disturbances, the other as a part-time caretaker for people with mental disabilities.

Recently decided (maybe with some help of my 30th birthday leading to some reflections) that I'd like to go back to grad school, this time to earn a MA in Counseling, with a specialization in working with teens that have been abused and who have learning/emotional difficulties as a result. With that in mind, I'll be studying again for the GRE this fall and hopefully will enroll part-time (still hoping to keep my current jobs) at probably Middle Tennessee State University in Fall 2005 to work toward that degree.

So yeah, that's my college history, present, and future. Enjoy. <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;) --> view post
